First, there is almost no way the Isles trade Tavares.

Second, this package wouldn't come close. Not that the players aren't good, but Bozak is a UFA after this year and Kessel after next. The Isles are looking for long-term success, and having just Gardiner and a center prospect who would be the third best center prospect on the Isles (behind Strome and Nelson) at best is a serious downgrade for the future. The Isles are much, much better off keeping the star signed for five years after this.
